Corporate Profile


Piping and Equipment was established in 1969 under the leadership of Roger A. Patterson, Sr. The doors were opened with three warehouses in three states. The emphasis of the new organization was excellence in performance, the pursuit of which began with the hiring of a select staff.

Our motto, "Pride in Excellence", is the result of our Total Quality Program. The program started in 1987 and has gained Piping and Equipment recognition as one the nation's most respected "quality" PVF distributors. Piping and Equipment in Houston, Texas, has been awarded a certificate of registration in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 by QMI - SAI Global.

In 1995 Piping and Equipment joined Affiliated Distributors. This association enables us to offer a customer-driven, single source solution that will reduce total procurement, inventory, and distribution costs while improving service to the end user.
